Thank you Dmitri,

Changing line 235 in ggpunit.c according to your instructions, together
with modifications of line 240 and 767 in ggpunit.c and line 17 in
scan_for_matches.c according to: 

old: char *malloc();
new: extern void *malloc();

Solved the problems, now it compiled on Linux with gcc, very nice!
